Reviewed: Encounters With Flying Humanoids

Posted by: Nick Redfern on September 10th, 2013


If you haven’t yet got hold of a copy of Ken Gerhard’s new book, Encounters With Flying Humanoids, then you really should!

There’s a new review of it – from me – over at Mysterious Universe, which you can find right here.

And here’s an extract from the review:

“A few days ago, I received a review copy of the new book from cryptozoologist Ken Gerhard. Published by Llewellyn, its title is Encounters With Flying Humanoids. Ken is the author of a number of previous books, including Monsters Are Real, Big Bird!, and (with me) Monster of Texas. And, I’m very pleased to say, the book does not disappoint. Indeed, I read the whole thing in one sitting – which is a sure sign that the book is a very good one!

“As you will surmise from the title, Ken’s latest release is a study of all manner of weird winged things that appear to be at least partly human-like, but part-something very different, too. Before I get to the book itself, it’s worth noting that Encounters With Flying Humanoids is an excellent companion to Ken’s Big Bird! book, which deals with sightings of winged monsters of the specifically giant-bird and pterodactyl variety. So, with that said, onto Ken’s newest.”

    Flying Humanoids. No proof of any kind has been shown for the existence of flying humanoids. Video’s from all over, especially Mexico, have been proven to be misidentifications or outright fakes. A word about the most famous winged being, at least in this country… Mothman. I was around in the late sixties and vividly remember the collapse of the Sliver Bridge in West Virginia and the tragedy that event was. At the time, the Mothman was not really national news and was made famous by John Keel’s entertaining book, “The Mothman Prophecies”, chronicling the series of events leading up to the calamity. I happen to have a first edition hardcover version of the book, purchased in 1975 with the terrific cover drawing on the dust jacket. Entertaining and slightly odd, the book details encounters with the title entity and crosses over into another realm with the inclusion of; Men In Black, strange visitors, covert government agents and all manner of creepy events.
    Much akin to a Golden Era Hollywood bio-flick, the book reads well and is fast moving and enjoyable with only one actual fact present; the collapse of the Silver Bridge in December of 1967. All the other material is anecdotal at best and if not made of whole cloth altogether, certainly not substantiated by any proof of any kind as Keel inserts himself into the time-line with his unusual experiences on the scene. Indrid Cold, we hardly knew you…The film version with Richard Gere is a different experience altogether being filmed mostly in Pittsburgh, Pa. where my daughter went to college. The University of Pittsburgh is on view in the film.

    Such is my problem with all Flying Humanoid encounters, a lot of stories with not much to go along with them.
